I used to eat it right out of the garden and then toss the cob to the hogs. Little did I know I was doing it wrong. I also used frozen petite peas in a salad.

We grow lots of corn in GA. When I freeze corn I always blanch the ears or blanch the corn kernal once off. I have a tool that I use to cut the corn off the ears that also removes the "milk", which is where the thickening comes from once it is reduced and heated. You can also, not preferred, add a little whole milk and some corn starch.
Here is the cutter.

Well the frozen ones aren't exactly raw - they're blanched before freezing.

Ditto the peas and I've seem cooks on TV use "raw" froze peas too.

If it grew above ground, we ate it right there in the middle of the garden. And that included peas. If below ground, we had to head for the hose to wash it off. That included carrots. We ate so well.
